Not in my house

I'm posting this in honor of Poppy.
Who taught me to measure once, cut twice,
throw it in the scrap heap,
measure again, second guess,
measure twice, make the cut,
cuss when it's still wrong and
cover it with decorative trim.

Make a sketch, measure twice, think three times, and then cut once. Especially when you're laying stone tile.

And that pretty much sums up my handyman skills.

"Measure with a yardstick, cut with a torch, hammer to fit, paint to hide."

I must have been doing a project like your Poppy would yesterday.

Good thing the girlfriend wasn't around ;)
